— A storm system will approach the Miami Valley just in time for St. Patrick's Day, said Storm Center 7 Meteorologist Brett Collar. Early Saturday morning the system will bring freezing rain and possible ice acccumulation.
Slick roads and icy sidewalks could be an issue beginning at 4am Saturday, and last through noon.
Prior to sunrise Saturday, freezing rain is set to move in from the west. This will become more widespread around sunrise and that’s when ice accumulation will start to become a big issue. This will continue through the morning hours but by 10am or 11am, we should start to see a transition over to rain as temperatures climb above freezing. Untreated surfaces however are likely to still be icy through lunch time.

The Miami County Coroner’s Office has identified the victim of a fatal crash on Interstate 75 in Tipp City as Ibrahimi Abdelmaguid, 49, of Dearborn Heights, Michigan.
Additional details were not available.
UPDATE @6:39 a.m.
One person died when two semi-tractor trailers collided on Interstate 75 in Tipp City during white-out conditions Thursday morning.
According to the Ohio State Highway Patrol, one semi rear-ended another semi, lost control and struck the median wall in the crash on southbound I-75. The driver of the at-fault semi was taken to Upper Valley Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries. A passenger in the sleeper section was pronounced dead at the scene.
The driver of the semi that was struck was not hurt.
Troopers said white-out conditions are to blame for the crash.
Interstate 75 is extremely slick with at least one fatal crash reported and multiple slide-offs.
A fatal crash was reported on southbound I-75 between the 69 and 70 mile markers in the Tipp City area shortly before 4 a.m., according to reports.
Our crew in the area said the highway is extremely slick, and video shows the highway is a sheet of ice. Anyone on highways should use extreme caution.
We are working to learn more about the fatal crash.
